started talking about role of law. i said to him at the time, what strikes me about this topic was that other than the occasion i can think of, other than when paul worked at the state department and bill clinton was president, this topic in my view has never gotten the attention it deserves. it has been treated too much as a technical topic. not as a fundamental topic about the relations of the state's. in my experience, i always say the chinese leadership, the most distinctive characteristic is they are systematically opened. that is to say the modus operandi is on a particular topic, let's look for the best ideas throughout the world, bring them back, study them, and then customize them as appropriate for our own system. and yet in this one respect, they have been a little bit slow. we had this conversation 10 years ago. now, i will stick my neck out and say for a variety of reasons, some of which are circumstantial, some of which have to do with the leadership in the standing committee come i believe that this topic will have to become an a more important topic. and that wi

. president vladimir putin has signed a new law banning those adoptions, leaving shocked adults and children wondering what will happen next. here is nbc's kerry sanders. >> reporter: cindy and dennis boyer were weeks away from adopting baby adeline. they met the almost 2-year-old recently as they visited her russian orphanage. but now vladimir putin has signed a law that despite mounds of paperwork and thousands of dollars already spent, all the more than 1,500 adoptions currently under way and any future adoptions are permanently cancelled. >> she's for a home, ready for a family, ready to be loved. >> reporter: why the new adoption law signed so publicly? russian authorities say some of the adopted have been abused or died. one unruly boy was even sent back on a plane alone to russia. also at play here say u.s. experts, retaliation. a visa ban on russian officials accused of human rights violations. >> they're retaliating by holding hostage orphans that otherwise would have homes in the united states. >> reporter: the state department says we deeply regret russia's decision. >> i would as

-president harry truman called the do-nothing congress, it managed to pass 906 bills into law. think about that as you watch the next report about one of the few things lawmakers seem to agree on, dismantling a little known office that's designed for one simple thing, keeping them honest. >> what is outrageous about it is you see members of congress on both sides saying they have zero tolerance for unethical conduct, but behind closed doors, they're quietly trying to kill the one body in congress that is trying to seriously go after unethical members. >> melanie sloan is director of c.r.e.w. or citizens for responsibility and ethics in washington. she's talking about the office of congressional ethics, the only government body outside of congress whose sole mandate is to formally investigate members inside congress, but many of the same members of congress want the oce gone. >> the oce has forced members of congress to take ethics more seriously. it has forced the ethics committee act and let all members of congress know they can't skate by like they have for so many years with unethical c

of connecticut a similar law to the one adopted here banning assault weapons. this has been a heroin, terrific week in the state of connecticut, culminating in today's moment of silence at 9:30. the end of the week and i spent the better part of the time meeting with first responders, families, going to funerals and wakes and speaking with ordinary people of newtown and the state of connecticut. the refrain i have heard over and over again from newtown and connecticut and all the run the country is you need to do something about the guns. the nra statement today is sadly and shamefully inadequate, calling for more guns and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that
this shows a lack of judgment by the newspaper, and i think that we should not be stigmatizing every law-abiding gun owner out there and i think particularly after newtown, let's engage in a conversation about sensible policies that going owners, including probably many of these people whose names were printed in the paper and most americans agree on, like background checks for all gun sales and getting military style assault weapons off the streets and other sensible policies. >> the interesting thing about this, apparently these gun permits are for handguns only because you can't find out who owns let's say a semiautomatic assault rifle. those things aren't made public. why is that? >> well, that is a serious problem, the gun lobby has exerted its pressure to keep a lot of very important crime gun data secret, for example, there are restrictions which now prevent us from finding out which gun dealers supply most crimin criminals. gun lobbyists shut it down with friends in congress which protects corrupt gun dealers. most law-abiding gun dealers would like to expose the bad ones. >> so
and better from my perspective, he's not the nominee to begin with. >> rush limbaugh did call a law student a slut and a prostitute for wanting to have insurance covered for her contraception. i presume you wouldn't view what as absurd or entertaining, you'd view that as pretty offensive. >> of course not. of course, as i said before. i want to spend my time talking about how we can grow the economy. what i'd like to talk about which is offensive, which is governor romney out there for almost a year telling the people in the republican primary that he never advocated that romneycare would be a federal model, that he never advocated for an individual mandate that government at the federal level require people to buy insurance. now we find on several occasions just in the past week article after article, interview after interview where governor romney did just that in 2009. now, to me that's offensive. >> is he a liar then? >> well, this goes to the snobbish issue, which is he clearly did not tell the truth, that you don't necessarily go and, you know, accuse the person on a personal level, y
our efforts. >> reporter: state senator jerry hill was joined by chp and peninsula law enforcement to introduce senate bill 55 that would require second dui offenders to install an ignition interlocking device for a year. >> this bill will make it clear that if repeat offenders do not complete the ignition interlock program, then they will never get their license back. >> reporter: earlier this month the national transportation safety board recommended anyone convicted of drunk driving not just repeat offenders install the device. peninsula law enforcement say they back the senator's plan. >> 17 repeat offenders for dui arrests. each of those 17 have had their second offense. so this legislation that is being proposed today is actually needed to be added as part of the arsenal that we have. >> reporter: how it works is the driver breathes into the iid when they get in the car. if the device detects a blood alcohol level above a set limit, it keeps the car from starting. senator hill says california needs this type of stricter enforcement in our state. >> it makes no sense that a
. the president signed it into law. more than ten million voted to support it but more than two thirds did not participate. critics say it passed to quickly. human rights watch said it protects some rights but undermines others. >> russia's president could soon decide if americans should be ban from adopting russian children. the government voted in favor of such a ban. russian activists say it deprives children of the chance to leave orphanages. it's a response to a united states law calling for sanctions against russia. >>> today marks the 8th anniversary of the quake and tsunami. survivors held prayer services. the un called it the worst natural disaster to hit thailand. tsunami's went through 14 countries. 200,000 people died. >> we are back on storm watch this day after christmas. mark is tracking a fast moving storm that has produced plenty of rain. >> and we check the return polesis of major stores. what you need to know before you return that unwanted gift. >> here is a look at bridge. you can see it's wet. we will let you know where we had spin outs this morning coming up next
's for it to be approved and signed into law. today's the 27th. the senate comes back in session today, the house is in pro-forma so it probably will not do any work. you only have a few days left for lawmakers to make a deal -- ink a deal. the president took off last night from hawaii, but there's a five-hour time difference. time is working against these lawmakers. they will have to figure out something if they want to do anything before new year's. it seems quite likely that we are going to go over this cliff and that whatever happens is going to have to be resolved after january 1. it has been looking like that before the holiday, but certainly now, particularly if you remember for congress broke for the christmas break, speaker raynor was not able to get the backup plan through his caucus, so there was no pressure on democrats to try to counter that immediately. senate democrats saying we passed a bill that raises tax rates on incomes over $250,000, we ran on this and this is what we are offering. house republicans were saying, no, we want to negotiate something, figure it out and send it to us. someo

condition. officers involved in the shooting had eight years ago by law-enforcement experience. an 18 year-old man is in critical condition this morning after being shot several times at the pittsburg bay. bart station. this was the scene in the parking lot where the shooting happened. police received reports of the shooting just before 7:00 last night and the victim was transported to john muir medical center with life- threatening injuries that needed surgery. police said not yet located the gunmen and service was stopped last night for about 45 minutes as officers made sure the shooter was not getting away on a bart train. bart trains were also held in concord after reports of a man with a gun at the station. police activity caused major delays last night on the pittsburg a point line in both the sampras is go and pittsburg directions. these reports are related to the earlier shooting at the pittsburg station and service expected to rent regularly today. >> three officers are her every gunman opened fire overnight inside their headquarters near philadelphia. it happened in camden county
. >> new this morning. the number law enforcement officers who died while on duty have declined this year. 127 federal, state and low officers have died while performing their duties so far this year. there were 165 deaths last year and 154 in 2010. the majority of officers who died were either victims of traffic accidents or were shot. texas had the highest number of deaths at 10. followed by georgia with 8 and maryland and colorado both had this experience >> in world new lows. the victim of a brutal gang rape and new dell high has arrived in singapore for additional medical treatment, after her condition worsened. the 23 year-old woman was attacked in a new dell high bus last week. if the rape sparked widespread protests-and a government panel will be assembled to look into the crime and suggest ways to approved women's safety. >> south africa's presidency says that former president nelson mandela has been released from the hospital. the 94 year-old had been in the hospital since the beginning of this month. he was diagnosed with a lot of infection and also had a surgery to remove gall
steps. but in 10 days, we face a deadline. in 10 days, under current law, tax rates are scheduled to rise on most americans. and even though democrats and republicans are arguing about whether those rates should go up for the wealthiest individuals, all of us, every single one of us, agrees that tax rates should not go up for the other 98% of americans, which includes 97% of small businesses. every member of congress believes that. every democrat. every republican. so there is absolutely no reason not to protect these americans from a tax hike. but the very least, let us agree right now on what we already agree on. let us get that done. i just spoke to speaker boehner and met with senator reid. i have asked congress to work on a package that prevents a tax hike on middle-class americans, protect unemployment insurance for 2 million americans, and lays the groundwork for further work on growth and deficit reduction. that is an achievable goal. that can get done in 10 days. once this legislation is agreed to, i expect democrats and republicans to get back to washington and have it p
law being introduced that targets drunk drivers. i'll get to that in just a moment. let's go to video now showing officers that they are out and ability looking for people celebrating a little too much. >>> police operated a checkpoint last night that went into this morning as well. so far, 165 people have been arrested for dui and there has been three fatal collisions. people we spoke to this morning is a the high police presence makes them more aware. >> i think that makes you know that, you know, police are out there, that they're taking this seriously and so to be careful and that's top of mine knowing they're out there. >> state senator jerry hill will cut down on drunk driving. the device prevents the cars engine after it a preset limit. coming up at 8:00 a.m. you will hear from a woman who who has been convicted of a dui. what she thinks about the new law. >> president obama has called congressional leaders from both parties to the white house today as a last ditch effort to avoid the fiscal cliff. he cut short his hawaii vacation to return to washington and coming up, signs th
in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will
or anybody else for that matter. there is a law that goes into effect in ten days that raises taxes on millionaires, small businesses filing as millionaires and everybody else. boehner's bill tried to stop that for everybody else. offa lifeguard sees ten swimmers drowning off of his beach and can only reach nine of them to save them, it doesn't mean that he's drowned the tenth one. all in nonsense somehow boehner was trying to raise taxes is just that, nonsense. >> your point is if you are anti-tax, vote for this bill. >> he was trying to stop a massive tax increase and unfortunately, some of my colleagues didn't see it that way. >> how bad is it up there? americans look at what's happening in washington right now and want both sides to get to work. i know it can be very collegial up there but in these meetings behind closed doors, what's the atmosphere like? >> miguel, bad process creates bad policy. and what we're watching today is extraordinarily bad process. for example, the president is not supposed to be part of the negotiations of the legislative branch. he is a separate bran
year's to be signed into law. today is the 27. and so you have a few days left for lawmakers to make a deal. the president's should land at some point. there is a 5 hour time difference. they have to figure out something. it seems likely will go over the cliff. it has been looking like that before the holiday, but certainly now, particularly if you remember for congress broke for the christmas break, speaker raynor was not able to get the backup plan through his caucus, so there was no pressure on democrats to try to counter that immediately. senate democrats saying we passed a bill that raises tax rates on incomes over $250,000, we ran on this and this is what we are offering. house republicans were saying, no, we want to negotiate something, figure it out and send it to us. someone is going to have to move. the question is, who? the president met with senate majority leader harry reid before going to hawaii and his offer was to extend the tax cuts for incomes under $250,000, extend unemployment insurance benefits, and the lady across -- and then delay the across the board automati
to washington and have it pass both chambers. i will immediately sign that legislation into law before january 1 of next year. >> congresswoman, with time running out, can the house come back after christmas and pass a bill, any bill to avoid the fiscal cliff? >> well, alex, i'm one of the vote counters for the democrats. i sent a letter to speaker boehner yesterday. you need to you a ban don the idea that you have to have a majority of the majority to pass legislation. in other words, speaker boehner said here's my plan. and forget you, democrats, and i'm just going to pass it with my caucus and then -- his tea party rebelled against him. what i think he should do, come to the democratic leadership, put together a coalition in the middle, moderate republicans, moderate democrats, and we could come to an agreement and we could pass it. this idea that -- >> where might that agreement come? i'm going to ask my director to put up we have would full screens on the basics. where there are areas that could be discussed for some level of commonality. where do you think that might come, that compromise?

, who does that help? >> i spent the day on the phone yesterday with the law enforcement community up there. what we gather is the police chiefs don't like it. the elective sheriff, he doesn't like it p. and as we learned from the comments in the newspaper, the gun owners certainly don't like it. that leaves the remaining sector finding the article interesting. >> what do they say about it? >> police chiefs look at it and say, look 40% of these people holding the gun mer mitts are active or retired law enforcement. these are people who may have put people in prison or prison guard who inmates might be looking for their home address and now it's point and click. the other thing is that 8,000 -- i mean if you just take rockland county, 8 thousand either active or retires nypd officers live there. so within the law enforcement community, they say you're giving the people a map to our home addresses that's searchable. >> one of the criticisms here is that potential robbers are going to know who has guns and who doesn't to know which homes to target. how does this make
